Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 large egg yolks, slightly beaten
2 large egg whites, stiffly beaten
2 tablespoons melted butter, at room temperature

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Combine buttermilk, baking soda and egg yolks. Mix lightly and add to dry ingredients. Mix until batter is barely smooth. Stir in butter. Gently fold in egg whites.
  3. Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375°F (190°C). Grease griddle with shortening. Griddle is ready when a few drops of water bubble and skitter rapidly around.
